Wheel Alignment
Equipment Africa > Tech Talk

On this vehicle, the front wheels are not aligned to the rear thrust line. This can happen from normal wear and stress, whether your vehicle has adjustable or non-adjustable rear suspension.

To steer straight ahead, you would have to steer the front wheels slightly to the right.

A common result would be that the vehicle would "dog track" and possibly "pull" to the side.

Of course, the angles are exaggerated so you can more easily see the condition. But it takes only a small misalignment to create problems.

Reduced Tyre Wear

Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tyre wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tyre life.

Better Fuel Mileage

Fuel mileage increases as rolling resistance decreases. Total alignment sets all four wheel parallel which, along with proper inflation, minimizes rolling resistance.

Improved Handling

Does your car pull to one side? Does the steering wheel vibrate? Do you constantly have to move the steering wheel to keep your car traveling straight ahead? Many handling problems can be corrected by total alignment. With all the system components aligned properly, road shock is more efficiently absorbed for a smoother ride.

Safer Driving

A suspension system inspection is part of our alignment procedure. This allows us to spot worn parts before they cause costly problems.

1. Angle readings are measured at all four wheels.

2. The steering is centered.

3. Front wheels are referenced to rear thrust line and set to specifications.

Result - All four wheels are parallel and the steering wheel is centred.

1. Angle readings are measured at all four wheels.

2. Rear wheels are set to specification. (Rear thrust line corresponds to vehicle centerline.)

3. Steering wheel is centered.

4. Front wheels are referenced to the rear thrust line and set to specification.

Result: all four wheels are positioned straight ahead and parallel, and the steering wheel is centered.

M & B Exclusive Importers

Equipment Africa appointed as exclusive importers for the M&B Range of equipment. M&B was established on 3 February 2006 by Franco Magnani and Dido Boni. The founding partners began their professional experience in the automotive sector at a company in Correggio, leaders in the production of equipment for tyre specialists and car workshops, especially tire changers and wheel balancers. Franco Magnani started his technical-commercial experience in 1959 and Dido Boni exactly ten years later (1969). In January 1975, together with two other partners, they founded the company Sicam, remaining at the helm until August 2005 when they were bought out by Bosch and achieving success and recognition all over the world for their machines and equipment designed to solve the issues resulting from the constant evolution of tires and fitting them on rims. M&B was created to pass on all this experience and know-how to their heirs, who are, and will remain in the future, the supporting pillars of the new company.
